. is that what president obama calls it? and now could that bump in the road turn into a major roadblock for president obama's campaign? republicans tearing into the president for downplaying the violence in the middle east. in a tv interview last night president obama referring to the recent outbreaks of anti-american violence as "bumps in the road." >> have recent events in the middle east given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the arab spring? >> well, i said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. the question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change. i think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy, universal rights, a notion that people have to be able to participate in their own governance, but i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> bumps in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. we had a muslim brotherhood elect a member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 people have been
. and this is not a fact that is lost on our president mr. obama stumping there yesterday. >> i still believe in you. and if you keep on believing in me, i want you to register to vote by october 9th. i want you to start voting next tuesday, october 2nd. >> so paul steinhauser joins me now from washington, d.c. paul, let's go right back to iowa. everything begins in iowa. and we've got a recent poll that shows president obama has a seven point lead in iowa. so here's the guess. he wants to gets a many early votes in the bank in that state as possible and then move on with his person and his money. >> exactly. everybody knows iowa's that first state that votes in the primary and you caucus calendar and it's family us for that. it was the state that gave president obama -- senator obama his first victory. and he won iowa four years ago in the general election, considered a battleground state. both campaigns really going after it. four years ago goi, 545,000 iowans cast ballots early. and that was almost double what they did eight years prior. so early voting is important in iowa as it is in a bunch of
both mitt romney and president obama haveeen campaigning i the same battlegroun state. this time it's virginia where both men targeted the same group of voters. let's walk over to cnn's naon political correspondent jim acosta who's been out on the campaign trail wahingt' going . another dramatic da. virginia, virginia, virginia. pretty important place. >> that's right. a rare visit to washington for me. but it's good to be home, wolf. all politics is local. so it was no surprise to hear both candidates hit on national security themes today in their speeches in virginia. but the state is much bigger than that. it's really a republican firewall for mitt romney. in battleground virginia, both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery before a group of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president
. >>> thanks very much. happening now, president obama on this day he has some time to raise money in person, but only time for a phone call with israel's leader. more criticism coming in. we're also looking at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the presid
obama for calling the latest setbacks in the middle east bumps in the road. >>> the president is focusing in on world peace as he prepares to address the united nations. he's also making time to woo women voters. >>> and a tv first, u.s. marines are giving new details about one of the costliest attacks on u.s. airpower in decades. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> with only 43 days to go until the presidential election, mitt romney is starting to zero in on a handful of battleground states that will decide this election. one of those states is colorado, where romney just wrapped up a rally at the pueblo airport. our national political correspondent jim acosta is standing by live. jim, what happened? >> reporter: wolf, with the calendar shrinking and the debates fast approaching, mitt romney is starting to barnstorm through crucial swing states like here in colorado. he knows he has serious ground to make up. today he tried to do just that on the subject of foreign policy. it's not debate time yet, but mitt romney was looking for one on foreign policy in fro
? joining me now is john avlon. listen to mrs. obama over the weekend. >> we cannot let anyone discourage us from casting our ballots. we cannot make anyone make it feel unwelcome in the voting booth. it's up to us to make sure that in every election, every voice is heard and every vote is counted. that means making sure our laws preserve that right. monitoring the polls to make sure every eligible voter can exercise that right. >> so john, so many new laws. so many different requirements now. poll workers are going to have a field day trying to figure out what it all means. is there the potential for chaos at the polls come november? >> is there the potential? absolutely. we're changing the rules. that leads to a degree of uncertainty. people who haven't had to show id befo i.d. before in certain states will have to do so. some folks may be afraid of that. we have a tortured history of voting rights in this country. laws strike an emotional button. we have instances in the past of voter fraud. the fact that this has happened in so many states in the last two years does strike many people as
. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
-and-run is complete. at this very hour president obama's back in washington after fleeing new york city and the united nations general assembly. that means yet again he's free to resume his daily routine of fundraising, hobnobbing with celebrities and campaigning. as we reported last night during his brief visit to new york he found time to sit down for an interview with, yes, the ladies of "the view." today he cleared a few minutes on his schedule to deliver a quick speech at the u.n., however declined to meet with a single world leader while on the ground. that makes him the first president in more than two decades to avoid his counterparts on a u.n. trip. in addition, he uttered the word "terrorist" only once today. ironically the same amount of times that he tweeted about the ongoing nfl/referee labor dispute. it's statistics like these that show where the president's priorities lie. let's see, whoopi goldberg and joy behar, trumping benjamin netanyahu. if you needed more proof that this president is not interested in siding with our allies in israel, it came yesterday. this is the american delega
't. the guys in question are president obama and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and a whole lot was made of the fact they did not meet in person when they both travelled to new york for the u.n. general assembly and the white house wants you to know they do stay in touch, that there are phones in the white house and the u.s.-israeli relationship is air tight. mr. netanyahu just seemed to take great pains to smooth over what had seemed like friction between himself and our commander in chief all over how the world should respond to iran. >> i very much appreciate the president's position as does everyone in my country. we share the goal of stopping the iran's nuclear weapons program. this goal you nights the people of israel. it you nights americans, democrats, and republicans alike and it is shared by important leaders throughout the world. >> dan lothian is joining me live from the white house. a two-part question off the bat. has the phone call happened yet and is this more about appearances, objects, just shutting everybody up? >> two good questions there. first of all, i am
by the obama campaign. >> i think the president will not be able to continue to mischaracterize my pathway. so i will be able to mine and he will describe his and people will make a choice. that is it great thing about democracy. i will not fool people to think things. that ends during the debates. >> reporter: the governor says the romney campaign pointing to the acknowledgement that the president made last night not in that "60 minutes" interview that was broadcast but in the webcast that followed saying he thinks some of the attacks his campaign leveled at governor romney have actually gone overboard, patti ann. patti ann: yeah, john. the romney campaign hammering the president on that "60 minutes" interview. tell us more about that. >> reporter: hammering him on a number of fronts. the current idea that the middle east unrest and murder of chris stevens are bumps in the road as president obama said last night, characterizing as quote noise, israel's concerns about iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapon. then there was this about the president's biggest disappointment. >> if you ask me what's m
to achievement. and the next great idea could be yours. ♪ >>> a wake up call for mitt romney. president obama opening up a big lead in what may be the most crucial swing state in the united states. ohio. the republican candidate took note. >> welcome to cuyahoga county where we have more republicans registered than any other county in ohio. so we're going to deliver cuyahoga county to you too. >> i need it in a big way, all right? come on you, you guys, you got to come through. >> he had a sense of humor, but he'll need more than just cuyahoga county to turn those poll numbers around. peter hamby joins me now. i know you had a chance to talk to strategists. what did they tell you? >> most republicans in ohio don't think the situation is that dire yet. they do acknowledge both inside the campaign and outside that they are losing and the main reason that the republicans in ohio point to is that romney doesn't really have a cohesive message and said this is why you should throw barack obama out and install me as president. the key issue is the bailout of chrysler and general motors that the pres
on president obama and the economy. how has he managed to avoid public retribution for not fixing the economy better than he has done? >> because this is not a normal time. >> plus his extraordinary work with the clinton global initiative. >> we don't have to produce miracles. all we have to produce is progress. we just keep pushing these rocks up the hichll. >> is the world ready for a clinton back in the office? >> i can run for president of ireland because of my irish heritage. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." good evening. the most powerful man and woman in the world are gathered in new york tonight at the u.n. and across town at the clinton global initiative. president obama spoke at cgi today. we'll get to that in a moment. he had tough talk on iran's nuclear program. >> let me be clear. america wants to resolve this through diplomacy and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. >> with just 42 days to go until the election, mitt romney blasted iran in his speech to the cgi. >> a voice of unspeakable evil and hatred has spoken out, threat
is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president wil usehis ample rhetoricts attack romney. obama won the debates against john mccain if 2008 by double digits. it is not just the romney team that is trying to lower expectations. check out what obama's senior campaign advisor said recently. >> look, mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. he even bragged that he was declared the winner in 16 of those debates. so i think in that sense having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> want to bring in our jim accosta, who is covering the romney campaign in wayne, indiana. i'm tired of the false flattery really. do people really buy this? >> reporter: no, i don't think buys it, suzanne, but, you know, campaign aides are going to do that, and th'regoin to keep doing it as long as
? you can see among likely voters, a lot more people think president obama than mitt romney. suzanne. >> yeah. and that might not be a good thing for them because they're trying to lower the expectations. we'll see how it goes. >> lowering. >> thank you, paul. >>> movers, shakers from business, government foundations, they're all meeting in new york right now to tackle some of the world's toughest problems. this is the clinton global initiative that we are talking about bringing people together. more than 1,000 leaders from around the rld. secretary of state hillary clinton spoke earlier at this event. this event, of course, convened by her husband, former president bill clinton. she talked about the reaction to some of the recent protests over an anti-islam video. >> the people of the arab world did not set out to trade the tyrammy of a dictator for the tyranny of a mob. there is no dignity in that. the people of benghazi sent this message loudly and clearly on friday when they forcefully rejected the extremists many their midst and reclaimed the honor and dignity of a courageous ci
. and earlier, the obama campaign, the burse python was a real concern for the obama campaign. a tweet from obama's press secretary ensured that residents knew the administration has banned import of the snake. now, you may laugh and there is some humor in this, but it is r very, very serious for some. ticks and snakes. because these micro targeting campaigns can really move the needle. they're important to crucial voters in crucial states like florida and virginia. ben smith, david frum, former adviser to george w. bush and corey elons. great to see you. so, you know, david, i have to say, lyme disease with so many to joke about this, it's got to be there's some crucial core of lyme disease cases and this is something people care about. turns out loudon county, northern virginia, has one of the highest rates of lyme disease in the country. could this issue really resonate? >> resonates with me. i've had lyme disease. it's nasty. it also is a way for candidates to connect with real issues to real people. who feel that a lot of the issues we discuss are awfully abstract. i mean, benghazi and
states now going into the obama column just a few moments ago. new hampshire, nevada and north carolina. in new hampshire, among likely voters, the spread is now seven points. margin error is about 3%. in nevada, it is a 2% spread within the margin of error. in north carolina, also within the margin of error, but now in favor of president obama. this is a state many people thought that could not happen in given especially the gay marriage debate, but these are the latest numbers we have tonight. obama is now leadinging in the latest polling from all nine battleground states. particularly a problem tonight is florida. the latest cbs poll shows obama ahead by nine points in florida. so, is this true? you may have heard about this. many on the right saying the polls are skewed. they're unfair. here is why republican strategist karl rove who knows polls and elections better than anyone says these polls can't possibly be right. >> think about this. romney and obama get each roughly the same percentage of the republicans and democrats as their opponent. that is to say they carry their base ov

and three administrations, the obama white house. a midder middle east diplomacy for msnbc and washington institute. dennis, let's talk about what netanyahu signaled he's doing today, demanding an ultimatum to iran on its nuclear program something the administration, the white house, has insisted they needambiguous. who is right here? >> imnot sure there is as wide a gap as you think. i believe what you're seeing is an agreement on the objective of making certain that iran cannot have nuclear weapons and then also i think agreeing that you have to come up with some kind of threshold to know when the objective of prevention has a meaning and it doesn't lose its content. i do think where the prime minister's coming from is, he wants to put, i think, a premium on having a clear definition of what's the point past which if iran crosses that particular line or tloesh hohreshold you'r longer in a position to prevent them. my guess he'll focus on why it's unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapons capability and he'll speak in effect to the world about coming together on not just having ope
expectations higher than that for your opponent, suzanne. >> we know that president obama actually won ohio 51-47%. why are they actually thinking that they've got some wiggle room here, that they've got some influence? what do they think they can do in the weeks ahead? >> they're going to hit this economic message as much as possible. we heard mitt romney talking about that earlier this morning. these polls that have come out do show that he still has an advantage over the president when it comes to who it best managed the debt and the deficit, who would cut the deficit, and so we heard mitt romney saying earlier this morning that the national debt stands at $16 trillion. right now if president obama gets four more years, he predicted the national debt would skyrocket to $20 trillion. he is putting that message out there. i had a chance to talk to mitt romney about some of this yesterday and suzanne, he did not seem concerned about this. he came to talk to us on his campaign plane yesterday saying that the obama campaign is basically trying to strike the football on the 30 yard line, there's
